A large univallate ringfort in this townland, 300 yards from Hazelhatch bridge. This is the first time I've seen one of these put to modern use: the owner has, in the past, used it for the rearing of pheasants. It's now completely overgrown and difficult to access – the large interior (roughly 35 metres diameter) is only slightly raised above ground level. The main defences were the deep ditch, now water-filled after the torrents we've been experiencing, said to be 3 metres deep in places and very steep-sided. The causewayed entrance is on the south side – the north side has been cut through by a modern field boundary. Impressive all the same. ryaner Posted by ryaner
